SignUp Is Coming!

In March 2007, the SignUp computer reservation system will be installed in all of the GPC Libraries. This is the same system for logging on to computers that is currently in place in the GPC Student Computer Labs. When the software is installed, current GPC students, faculty and staff must sign in to the library computers using their GPC email username and password. Non-GPC affiliated library users will need to create a username and password at the Reference Desk to login and use the computers in the library.

The time limit on computer use under the new system is two hours per login. Time can be renewed if no other users are waiting for a computer. If all computers are full, users can join the waiting list by signing into a queue station. Computers are assigned on a first come, first served basis.

If you are a currently enrolled GPC student and do not know your email username and password, you can access your information through the Student Login Query form up to five times. If you are unable to access your login information online, email or call the Helpdesk at 678-891-3460.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we adjust to the new system.
